Email To The Scoop: What do you know about a sailboat and dead body at the Crow’s Nest?
Judy asked me if I heard anything regarding a dead body at the Crow’s Nest earlier today, but I could not find anything out there. She wrote me back again, so I thought I would put it out there. I have emailed the SCSO and at this point in time this is unverified.
Sun 1:41 pm – Okay, I think I have the scoop. A couple from Pompano Beach had just bought the sailboat and the owner was piloting it for them to Bradenton to get the boat checked out. The owner collapsed and died at the helm. There were big seas. The woman buyer and her S.O. were hysterical and trying to get the Coast Guard. Something was broken at the helm so they couldn’t give them the coordinates. So eventually it was towed in by SCS and they went out there and located them. Towed them into the Crow’s Nest. Now these new owners need a Captain to get them to Ft. Meyers because they’re too afraid to do it themselves. Know anybody? They will pay and will drive the Captain back to Venice.
Sat 5:05 – It’s fishy. You don’t leave a dead body laying in the wide open for many hours in the hot Florida sun. I was told it’s a man about 55 wearing board shorts.
Sat 3:37 – The sailboat with the dead body aft is still at the Crow’s Nest with the Sheriff’s Department personnel overseeing. Something isn’t right. That body has laid there for hours. Know anything?
Sat 12:45 – Did you know about the sailboat that towed a dead body to the Crow’s Nest docks? VPD, Sheriff and awaiting Coroner.
